Roxana Robinson: The Cost of Addiction

by WGBH

Published 2008
Topics literature


Roxana Robinson, writer

Roxana Robinson tackles the subject of addiction, exploring its effects on the bonds of family. In her latest book, Cost: A Novel, Robinson brings her hallmark precision to the evocation of the emotional interiors of her characters.

Roxana Robinson is the author of three novels and two short-story collections. Her work has appeared in The New Yorker, Harper's Magazine, and Vogue. She has taught creative writing at several colleges, most recently at the New School in New York. Ms. Robinson's fiction has been compared to that of John Cheever, by The New York Times, and that of Edith Wharton, by Newsweek; Jonathan Yardley, of The Washington Post, says Robinson is one of our best living writers.
